CitizenShip Initiative At Elswick Eatery Is Good News For Both Causes And Fundraisers


The charitable efforts of an Elswick pub have resulted in almost £2000 being raised for good and local community causes.

The Ship at Elswick and its employees have thrown themselves into what they are calling a CitizenShip drive, not only raising money through their own efforts, but also creating a charity evening option that can help anyone generate valuable sums for their chosen cause.

The most recent example of fundraising came in the form of a Britain in Bloom evening that raised £330 for Elswick village as it attempted to seize the national Britain in Bloom title. The money went towards plants and displays within the village, contributing to community pride and community action.

Prior to this, employee Hannah Thistlethwaite staged a Kilimanjaro night at The Ship at Elswick, opting to adopt an event format that is a real bonus for anyone seeking to raise sums for charity.

Hannah raised £1600 for the Child Reach charity by selling 120 tickets for an African-themed three-course meal at The Ship. The Ship donated 25 per cent of the cost of the meal per head to her chosen charity, Child Reach. Raising this money enabled Hannah to book her place on a climb of Kilimanjaro, to raise even larger amounts.

“The Ship is keen to help others succeed by using this event format,” says manageress, Caroline Colbourne. “Hannah showed that by putting effort behind selling tickets, it is possible to raise tangible sums from just one evening staged here, thanks to our 25% contribution policy. This is something that all charity fundraisers should consider, as it really can boost the money in the charity coffers considerably.”

Anyone wishing to discuss such an evening at The Ship at Elswick should contact Caroline on 01995 672777 or email All sorts of ideas and themes can be discussed to tailor an event to the charity fundraiser’s needs.
